Are You Struggling With Hair Loss?

A good hair day with tons of volume is like an instant dose of slay, but when it’s lackluster and dull we’d rather stay at home. Our hair is a pretty big deal– we’ve all had that one terrible cut or a pair of bangs your mum trimmed way too high – so when we notice our hair is falling more than usual, we start to panic. 

Why Does Hair loss Occur?

There are actually so many things that can trigger hair loss, from hormones and genetics to our diets or stress, but it’s important to get to the root of the cause because the remedy will vary depending on the trigger.”

Reasons you could be seeing hair loss

Genetics: As we age our hair thins, so when we reach the 40 or 50 mark, most women will see a change in their hair, but substantial hair loss is often caused by genetics. Genetic hair loss is best treated early on, so you should see a trichologist (a hair expert) as soon as possible, and they should be able to recommend a course of treatment. The other option is minoxidil, which is the only topical treatment that has been proven to reduce hair loss.

Nutritional deficiency: Your hair needs two things: lots of nutrition and plenty of oxygen. Your body considers hair to be non-essential, so that means if your body isn’t getting enough nutrients, then your hair will be the first place it cuts the supply too.

Hormonal imbalance: Certain androgenic hormones can cause hair loss in people that are sensitive to these circulating hormones, even when they are within the normal limits. Some other hormonal imbalances, namely thyroid, can also be the cause of hair loss. 

Lack of exercise: If you don’t get enough oxygen your hair isn’t able to get rid of waste products and blood circulation will decrease. The more exercise you do, the better the blood supply to your extremities and the more oxygen can be spared to be sent to your hair.

Pregnancy: It is also possible to see hair loss after a pregnancy, but this should be temporary, and by maintaining a healthy diet, your hair should recover from the stress of labor within six months.
